Cool Stuff about Stem Cells

I am still getting my hands around the idea of “stem cells”. These are cells that morph into various types of cells that the body needs in order to build and repair organs. But now, BBC reports that a new process may make it easier to convert regular old blood cells (that we all have a lot of) into stem cells. As stem cells, they can be re-injected back into the body to fix and even rebuild stuff that has broken down or fallen off.

Very cool!
